Leadership Training

 

 
“The mothers and fathers of America will give you their sons and daughters… with the confidence in you that you will not needlessly waste their lives. And you dare not. That’s the burden the mantle of leadership places upon you … It is an awesome responsibility. You cannot fail. You dare not fail…”
General H. Norman Schwarzkopf,1991
Leadership is indeed an awesome responsibility yet it is equally dynamic. Understanding the individuality, character and behavior traits of your members is only the start. You must constantly develop your leadership style to be successful with this diverse group of up and coming leaders. The Primary Leadership Development Course is built by our instructors with your needs in mind.

 

Leadership Principles

 

  • Know yourself, first. In order to be a successful leader you must be willing to develop yourself first, every drill, every incident, every interaction, every day.
  • You must know your members in order to help them realize their potential. Whether you work with them every day or see them only at drills and incidents, it is vital that you make it your goal to understand your members if you are to assist them in reaching that potential.
  • Work side by side with your members, not above them. In order to know your members you must work with them on calls, station maintenance, and equipment services. We’re not saying do their jobs for them but if you are not around when your members are performing their jobs you will not know where to start in their development process.
  • The more you work as a team, the more you will work as a team. If you have discussions as a team, train as a team, and learn as a team it will become second nature at an incident or operation.
  • All work doesn’t make you a team. Make an effort to set aside “informal play” time with your members. Be a well rounded leader; take time out to see the big picture with your members. Do you know anything about their life outside your organization?
  • Open your mind. If you aren’t open to criticism, constructive or other, you won’t learn very much. We all make mistakes. Promising leaders learn from their mistakes and help prevent others from making the same ones.

Abstract:

The company officer, some would argue, is the most important job in the fire service. This session will help you understand why. One task of particular importance is to ensure every member of the company goes home safely. To do this effectively, we must ensure the crew has everything they need to do their job effectively and to the absolute best of their ability. It is imperative that the company officer instills leadership, initiative, and teamwork in their crew. We paint a picture of a strong leader and then we discuss how we can be that ideal company officer.

Title: “Diversity of Leadership”, Why You Shouldn’t Put all of Your Eggs in One Basket
Length of program:
90 minutes
Type of program:
Professional development
Abstract:
The United States is perhaps the most diverse society the world has seen since the Roman Empire. Given the diversity of race, creed, cultural, political and socio-economic strata, what skills do EMS leaders need in the midst of this diversity? In many workplaces the culture runs counter to the vision and objectives of the organization. This can be a result of management or leadership styles that experienced as bullying by staff, inappropriate attitudes and behaviors by some employees that create hostile work environments or customs and practice that conflict with agreed upon practices and policies. In addition, the workplace may have cliques that exclude some groups from joining, creating low levels of trust, stereotyping individuals based upon ideas, styles, age, gender or culture. How can leaders handle a diversity of ideas, styles, racial, cultural, and gender communications with a group and community? This lecture will allow students to brainstorm how leaders can juggle all the various eggs of diversity in leadership in order to create organizational climates and cultures that work well together.

Participants will learn how to identify and develop new leaders, how to implement succession plans for leadership programs, how to involve and retain past leaders and how to involve and recognize all volunteers within their systems.
